Myers (wrist) hopes to return in four to six weeks, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Myers had surgery on June 18 with the initial timetable of six to eight weeks. It looks like he will be right in the middle of that schedule or earlier. Melvin Upton figures to continue seeing the field, while Myers should return to his starting role upon full recovery.

Myers (wrist) underwent successful surgery Thursday to remove a bone spur in his left wrist.

Myers has been ruled out for approximately eight weeks because of the wrist issue. As a result, Will Venable will continue to receive everyday starts in center field, with Melvin Upton likely figuring into the mix on occasion as well. However, Myers should retake his role when he rejoins the club.

Myers (wrist) will undergo surgery on Thursday to remove a bone spur in his left wrist. The Padres announced that Myers is expected to be sidelined for eight weeks.

This news comes as a major blow to Myers and the Padres as the centerpiece of December's blockbuster trade is expected to be out until at least early-to-mid August. Myers had worked his way back from a month long DL only to be placed back on it just days later. The Padres will likely continue to use Will Venable as their regular center fielder, but new manager Pat Murphy could use some other options besides the veteran Venable.

Myers was placed on the disabled list Monday with left wrist tendinitis.

After missing over a month of action due to his ailing wrist, Myers returned last week from the injury, but lasted only three games before enduring another setback. The Padres are hoping that shutting him down a second time will resolve the issue, but things seem to be trending toward a second consecutive lost season for the 24-year-old. It's unclear how long he'll be out this time around, and even once he's cleared to return, it's questionable how quickly his power will come back. While Myers is out, Will Venable will enjoy regular duties in center field, while Yonder Alonso takes over as an everyday player at first base.

Myers is not in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.

Myers has started each of the Padres' three games since his activation Thursday, but will get a regular maintenance day for the Sunday afternoon contest. Yonder Alonso will take over at first base, while Will Venable bats atop the order. The 24-year-old Myers has been a bit rusty since his return, going 2-for-14 at the dish with five strikeouts.

Myers (wrist) has been activated from the 15-day DL and will bat leadoff Thursday against the Braves.

Myers hasn't seen the field for the Padres since May 7, but will jump right back in to his old role, manning center field and hitting atop the order. Prior to suffering the wrist ailment, the 24-year-old Myers had been off to a strong start, posting a .340 OBP with five long balls and three stolen bases. The outfielder collected five base hits in just three rehab games, so the Padres wanted to get him back in their lineup while he was in a groove.

Myers (wrist) took 75 swings without pain during batting practice Friday, and is expected to go on a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports.

Myers also took cuts Wednesday, and it appears he's progressing well from a wrist issue that sent him to the disabled list in mid-May. Barring a setback of some kind, he could rejoin the Padres' outfield at some point within the next couple weeks.

Myers (wrist) took batting practice Wednesday, but he is at least a week away from beginning a rehab assignment, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

It's encouraging to see that Myers is able to take swings, but the Padres will continue to be cautious with him, and it's looking like he will not return to the big club until at least the middle of this month.
